$10, a benefit for San Francisco Living Wage Coalition

David Rovics has carried on the venerable American musical tradition of writing and performing ballads in tribute to the working men and women who built the nation. He wrote the “Minimum Wage Strike,” “No One is Illegal” and “Shut Them Down.” David is performing at the historic Redstone Labor Temple on its hundredth anniversary. Hear samples of David's songs at http://tinyurl.com/6f4fr5

The Redstone Labor Temple opened in February 1914, and was the home of the San Francisco Labor Council and the city’s main labor unions. It was the site of meetings and planning for the 1934 General Strike.

The San Francisco Living Wage Coalition is a grassroots movement of low-wage workers and labor unions, community organizations and religious congregations fighting for economic justice. It generated campaigns that led to a number of unique local wage and benefit laws, including the highest minimum wage in the country.
